Bingo Meg + Disco Jazz ¦ Carboot Disco Bingo
An interactive experience — part dance-lesson, part party, part performance, part bingo. Essentially it’s an elaborate game of bingo combined with the magic of disco, think Henry Ford meets Donna Summer down the gala! C’mon disco dogs, get your groove on!
Megan Clark-Bagnall + Jasmine Loveys are Bristol-based independent artists, establishing Carboot Disco Bingo for Punchbowl Festival in 2012 — it has since toured the UK performing at festivals, art centres and Danny Boyle’s Shuffle Film Festival; in June 2013 they created and delivered several craft stations and Carboot Disco Bingo workshops for The Royal Shakespeare Company during their summer family festival. Jasmine makes solo performance, happenings, and interactive experiences; Megan likes making sculptural objects, installations, immersive art forms and live art.

Antje Hildebrandt ¦ You Make Me Want To Lose You
An experimental investigation into the human relationship between body and its surroundings. The performance plays in the here and now, with moments of stillness and movement, intimacy and publicity. The dancers cannot see but must negotiate themselves together and alone in a strange environment. In this playful and risky act of exploration the performers subtly interact with their surroundings — evoking moments of surprise, empathy and wonder.
Performers: Martha Passakopoulou + Rosalie Wahlfrid.
Antje Hildebrandt is a London-based choreographer and performer who creates site-specific performances, installations, one-to-one encounters, video and theatrical works. Her first choreography Hybrid was chosen to represent England in Bari, Italy at the 2008 Biennale for Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean. Antje has worked with Serbian Artistic Collective Doplgenger, Lea Anderson, Willi Dorner, Franko B, Ivana Müller and Tino Sehgal, and is a member of Trio, a collective of four artists interested in collaborative performance practice.
